GOOD JOBS SAFE JOBS NOW IS THE TIME! Workers Memorial Day | April 28 Learn more today at: afscme.org JOBS SAVE LIVES! KEEP THE PROMISE ALIVE Workers Memorial Day • April 28 Four decades ago, Congress passed the Occupational Safety and Health Act, promising every worker the right to a safe job. AFSCME and our union allies have fought hard to make that promise a reality – winning protections that have made jobs safer, saved hundreds of thousands of lives and prevented millions of workplace injuries and illnesses. However, our work is not done. Many job hazards are unregulated and uncontrolled. Some employers cut corners and violate the law, putting workers in serious danger and costing lives. Our basic rights to collective bargaining and a voice on the job are under assault. Workers who report job hazards or injuries are fired or disciplined. Employers contract out dangerous work to try to avoid compliance with OSHA standards. Or hire undocumented workers who fear that reporting problems will get them fired or deported. As a result, each year thousands of workers are killed and millions more injured or diseased because of their jobs. The Obama administration has moved forward to strengthen protections with tougher enforcement and a focus on workers’ rights. But much-needed safeguards on silica and other workplace hazards have stalled in the face of fierce attacks by business groups and the Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives – who want to stop new protections. We must press forward and not let them destroy the progress we have made. Safety laws and regulations don’t kill jobs – but unsafe jobs do kill workers. On April 28, AFSCME and the unions of the AFL-CIO observe Workers Memorial Day to remember those who have suffered and died on the job and to renew the fight for safe workplaces. This year we will come together to call for good jobs that are safe and healthy. We will seek stronger safeguards to prevent injuries and save lives. We will stand for the right of all workers to raise job safety concerns without fear of retaliation, and for the freedom to form unions and speak out and bargain for respect and a better future. Please join us and keep the promise alive. OBSERVE WORKERS MEMORIAL DAY APRIL 28
